Benettiq* Worldwide premiere for the new model of the Displacement Class range

* Content and rationality of the onboard areas, dedicated to emotion and well-being

At the oncoming Cannes Yachting Festival, Benetti will officially premiere the new Mediterraneo 116’. The new Class Displacement series’ model, a 35,5-meter characterized by smooth and slender lines, represents a true stylistic revolution for the shipyard.

One of the main focus of the project is surely the brightness theme: the careful superstructure’s design provides a sensation of luminosity, amplified by several elements onboard. For instance, the 2-meter-wide crystal doors that from the main deck gives onto the main salon, or the continuous 3-meter tall picture windows. Always in the same salon, in the dining area, two windows give onto the exterior walkway that, thanks to its width, can also be used as a balcony

On the main deck can be found another perfect example of the revolution in design and layout brought to us by the Benetti Mediterraneo 116′: the 6-meter wide cockpit allows a panoramic view of the sea right forward with intelligent use of ergonomic spaces.

Farther forward, always on the main deck, the owner’s apartments, while guests have at their disposal 4 cabins in the lower deck, each one enriched by a large window that gives an exceptional sea-level view. Excellent design for the crew movement as well, so to grant the perfect privacy and the maximum efficiency.

Lots of space dedicated to fun and entertainments on the external area, with a huge area on the upper deck completely customizable.

Performance is guaranteed by two Man V-12-1400 developing 1,400hp each, giving the 116′ a top speed of 15 knots. At ten knots, the efficient hull design gives the Mediterraneo 116′ a cruising range of 3,000 nautical miles.
